This book will change the world, one family at a time. If our child-raising is dominated by our surrounding culture of consumerism and wealth, by individualism and tech gadgets, then our societal future is in trouble. If you are intentional though, having conversations with your kids about these influences and better ways to journey through life, then we could have a culture marked by compassion and contentment, driven by values and purpose.
This book resources you, as parents, with research and vision for better ways to ensure happy kids – through gratitude and caring and contribution. Then the book takes whole families along 40 structured conversations – all to be led by your kids!
The conversations will help your family navigate four big areas of life:
Our Relationships (like listening skills and conflict resolution)
Our Culture (from hospitality to tough tech talk)
Our Inner Selves (being a generous soul and living a purposeful life)
Our World (from understanding poverty to visiting a local politician)
As parents, we want our kids to have happy, loving lives. As a society, we need kids who are capable of thinking and acting beyond themselves to help others have happy, loving lives too.
